April’s cupcake

A little quick stitch last night, and I’m up to date with the “cupcake” SAL.  I’m stitching this along with some ladies on a French forum – one little cupcake each month, using the free designs by Lorraine Clarke that you can download on CyberStitchers.

I changed colours (again) because I rarely use the correct colours when stitching small designs – just delve into my leftovers thread bag.  However, my pink icing didn’t stand out enough, so I did a little backstitching with a darker pink.

Four months into the year and I actually have FIVE cupcakes because I stitched the February one twice. Here is a reminder of the January, February and March cakes I stitched.

They will come in handy for when I need to make cards or small gifts later in the year.

    • I’ve got got two small SALs on the go this year: the cupcakes and then one to prepare little pièces for xmas. For the moment I’m on schedule

  1. Your cupcakes are quite lovely and will make perfect cards. I like your two versions of the February cupcake. I stitched the March cupcake but it isn’t as pretty as yours. Our postage doubled March 31 so I’m not sure how many hand stitched cards I’ll be mailing this year ……
